Google to Slowly Move Everyone to the New Gmail
Google is preparing to more broadly roll out its new Gmail design to users on the web and mobile devices. For the moment the new Gmail is opt-in, but that is going to change over the next few months. The new Gmail will become generally available to everyone starting in July, though people will still need to opt in. Google says people who don't opt in within eight weeks from general availability will be migrated automatically. Google will allow people to opt out of the new Gmail for up to 12 weeks after it reaches general availability, or through October. After October, all users will be migrated to the new Gmail. The new Gmail has a refreshed design with features like nudge, snooze, and scam notifications. It also helps people unsubscribe from newsletters and makes it easier to view attachments. The new Gmail is already available to Android and iOS devices should users care to upgrade.

Contacts left out of new Gmail
Now you have to navigate to a new page by going to the Google apps (9 dots) and find Contacts among Map, Drive, Photos, Calendar etc.
In the current Gmail, you could get to your contacts by clicking on Gmail in the upper left corner. Now Contacts are buried.
Puzzling why Google would do this...
